FWB Woo Hoo

Well I seen my surgeon yesterday, it’s the end of my 10th week, she was very happy with my recovery and therapy progress report, she has ok’d me to begin FWB exercise and wants to see me in 2 shoes by Jan. 27th. I am using my walker, i’m a little unsteady on crutches right now, but applying some pressure on the right foot, i’m a little scared, but, if your surgeon says you good to go, then by golly I am going for it, of course with the help of my therapist!!

Can I get some advice on things to do to when not with my therapist? I am alone all day until my husband gets home at night so I need to be careful. I am very excited for this next stage.  Due to my job description, 80% standing or walking,  my OS did not release me to work, she will reassess in 8 weeks and then let me know, that will be 5 months since surgery!! Anyone else been out of work for that period of time or more?? I only wished “outsiders” knew the depth of this surgery and the recovery time! They act like “you’ve had surgery, shouldn’t you be ready to work”….

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving full of love and laughter!!


Slowly but surely

November 20, 2013- I’m soon to be at 11 weeks this Friday, It feels like 20 weeks, (can I get a witness, lol).  Therapy is slow go, but seeing great improvements in my ROM, very scary when therapist is stretching, learning to trust is another form of progression. Still not walking, PWB is giving me encouragement. Cannot wait to celebrate “Walkin Day”. Anyone have any advice to help that day be sooner than later??
